Japanese & Chinese Dolls?March 22, 2004
chinesedolls.jpg

I couldn't resist taking a picture of these lovely little Chinese Dolls lined up on the shelf. Of course, this was taken in Chinatown, over the weekend.

And, as Tomo pointed out, some of them are Japanese dolls. I think six of them are at the bottom left and two more are in the back, is that right?

Keeping DryMarch 20, 2004

After I waited a while for the rain to stop, the sound of raindrops became music. The ugly scaffolding above my head was beautified by the small light bulb.

Every time I walked by this building in Times Square, at least, one person was taking its picture. I didnít see any shutterbug last Friday, just thought I would fill in.

Believe in SpringMarch 18, 2004
dance_skater.jpg

I took this shot just about two weeks ago strolling though the Central Park. It was almost 60°! These skaters were out enjoying the weather, skating, dancing to the music.

Spring is just around the corner. But, it seems like we're getting two more days of snow, for now.

Just Another ReflectionMarch 17, 2004

I just love that earthy smell after the rain. Having to get that close to the ground with a 20mm was a good excuse.

Your voice made the night sweeter. You made it worthwhile, being here waiting for the subway at this hour. Thanks you!

Heading Home IMarch 12, 2004
empirestate_iii.jpg

I'd been thinking about getting a good compact sized camera for my trip at the end of the month. Over the weekend, I exchanged a couple of e-mails with e.ku. When asked about the cameras he used, he sent me a link to his SEAEK series, photographs taken when he traveled through South East Asia with Lomo LC-A and Olympus Stylus Epic. His images are just simply beautiful.

Big thanks to e.ku! I decided to dig up my Yashica T4 Super, a point and shoot camera, and give it another try. I bought the T4 years ago after reading a few reviews about how great it was. I only put a few rolls of film through it because I had such a hard time framing with a small viewfinder. Yes, it was easy to just blame a camera.

I dropped in a roll Provia into the T4 and put it in my pocket Monday morning. For a few days, I took random shots on the way to work and back. When I got the film back from the lab today, it was a great surprise. The slides came out much better than I expected. Well, you be the judge.

Iíll continue to post more images from Carl Schurz Park shot over the weekend in the next couple days. For now, Iím just a bit too excited about rediscovering the T4.

Photo Friday: PerspectiveMarch 10, 2004
benches_ii.jpg

The sun finally came out after it had been raining on and off all Saturday morning. I decided to drop a roll of Scala in my EOS-3 and take a short walk to Carl Schurz Park for my first Photo Friday entry.

This was my favorite spot on the promenade. I kept going back to take pictures of these park benches. It started to rain again just before I pressed the shutter for this shot. You might be able to see the raindrops on the benches in the larger image.

Walking through Central Park over the weekend, I saw this little guy was just sitting there quietly guarding the bag by himself.

My girlfriend had to do a research on American Girl Place's customer service. I tagged along. This is where you can bring your American Girl dolls to get pretty up. They even have a doll hospital in case you break a leg or two.

The weather was beautiful and these two men were just having a great time. It was a nice walk through the Central Park.

Once in a while, I get to do a tourist thing. This shot was taken over the holidays last year when my brother came to visit from Montreal.
